I read an e-mail from Entrecard yesterday, at first, I thought it was just an ordinary blog that they sent about in emails and I almost discarded it without reading, good thing that the curious and gossip in me took over and read the entire message.

Dear Entrecarders,

It is with great excitement that I announce, Inc. has
been Acquired by ZipRunner Inc.

ZipRunner has the resources, vision, and dedication to Entrecard that
will allow it to grow in pursuit of the vision I laid out nearly two
years ago.

Moving forward, my relationship to Entrecard will be that of an
advisor, and I will help the good folks at ZipRunner take the whole
project to the next level.

ZipRunner Inc. was chosen out of a number of potential suitors because
of the resources they can dedicate to the project, their exciting
vision for the company’s future, and their understanding of social
media and the blogosphere.

I urge you all to look forward to a bigger, better Entrecard, and I
couldn’t be more proud to bring it to this point before passing the
torch. I’ve heard first hand all the great things that are in store
for the company and it’s members, and needless to say it has me quite

If you would like to keep in touch with me in the future, you can
find me at my new blog where I look forward to
sharing my stories of entrepreneurship and starting/running internet

Whether you love or hate the decisions I’ve made for Entrecard in the
past, I always did the best I could to move the company forward given
the resources I had, and I always had the best interest of the members
in mind. Now, with new management and ownership stepping in, I urge
anyone who has left the service to give it another chance, and I urge
those who have been loyal members for days, weeks, months, or years to
look forward to a brighter future, a reliable and stable service, and
great new features and strategic direction.

Signing Off,

Graham Langdon
Founder of Entrecard

I suggest you visit his new blog to learn more about his decision (he pour his heart out on his post about that). It is kinda sad to let Graham go but I know that he got enough bucks to last him some time because of the deal and it is easier to think of it that way.

Now, what's next? What will happen to Entrecard and its members? As it is under new management, will there be new rules and policies or the old ones will stay? Do we have to wait long before we hear any news or will tomorrow be the day?

What to expect, what to expect *thinking*?
